For the last week or so, Paul has started saying “m” sounds. At first it was a little garbled, but for the last couple days he’s been saying “mama” very clearly. When he wants someone to pick him up, he crawls up to them saying “mama mama” (always in two syllable sets, even!) Mama is quite pleased.
We pureed pears last night and he is a huge fan. I gave him a few slices of pear and he thought that was about the best thing ever – they were pretty mushy pears, so he could even bite off pieces. He was kind of ticked at us for pureeing them instead of leaving them in strips.
Tonight he pulled himself to standing for the first time. At bedtime. In his crib. Time to lower the mattress! Also tonight, we bought him new carseats, as he weighed 20 pounds 10 ounces when I took him to the doctor last Wednesday and the weight limit on our infant carseat is 22 pounds. Meg was in the infant seat until she was finally 20 pounds at 14 months old.

We only have one non-gender neutral piece of baby gear: the high chair. Right about the time Meg needed one, this was on a great sale so I figured why can’t I have one girly thing? I’ve looked for covers, but Graco will only sell identical replacements (you have to have a model and lot number so they can send the exact one you originally purchased). There are tons on Etsy, but I’m not really into paying $40 for a new cover when I could buy a space saver for not much more. I figure it doesn’t hurt him anyway, right? What am I going to blackmail him with, if not pictures of him in a pink flowery seat?
